Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Rayo Vallecano and Valencia face each other at Campo de Futbol de Vallecas in what is expected to be a close La Liga encounter. Los Vallecanos failed to win the previous seven league games, with the team obviously struggling in front of goal and that is probably the main reason why home win should not be considered. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team, but Oscar Trejo remains in the recovery room.
Los Che, on the other hand, came from behind to share the spoils with Barcelona in their last league match. Valencia aim to put an end to their five-game winless run in Primera Division, but seeing that Rayo are tough to beat in Madrid, we are tempted to put our money on draw. The good news for the visiting side is that both Javi Guerra and Gabriel Paulista are back from suspension, while Jose Gaya misses out with a muscle problem.
